Preview new feature: select eyes and mouths

Having prioritized the request of being able to select eyes and mouths, I’m facing a lot of browser issues – predictably.  This is what the latest revision looks like:

I have not put it as the default yet for the Comic-O-Matic site until I get more feedback on it and have tweaked it to suit myself – but you can still right-click and save any strips you make using this interface the same way you save from the main page.

As always with your feeback, let me know platform (Windows, Mac, Linus, Android, iOS, etc.) and browser (Firefox, IE, Safari, Chrome, etc.) and version, if possible!  Screenshots are always helpful.

What do you think of the display including the numbers of the parts in red?

As always, thank you for your time, attention and support on this project!

Known issues:

INTERNET EXPLORER:  IE doesn’t display the eyes and mouths in the drop-down menus, which is why I added in the numerical designations for the parts.

ANDROID OS on Droid phones: The Android OS on Droid phones doesn’t like scrolling menus on ANY webpages, so I am still looking for a workaround for it.



Testers needed today (6/24/11): image picker interface, version 3

Once again, thank you to the folks who tried out the second version of the image picker. It seemed to work on all platforms, but I’m not entirely happy with showing only one option at a time, so it’s back to the drawing board!

Now I would like feedback on this version, from as many browsers and platforms as folks can get to me. This third version using a drop-down menu.  I’ve set it up to scroll because ComicO-Matic has almost thirty options each for eyes and mouths, although this script test only uses 8 sample items.

Please confirm that 1) the pair of eyes changes immediately to the selected pair, and 2)  the eyes remain as the chosen set after you click the “Select Eyes” button.

Again, many thanks!

Testers needed today (6/22/11): image picker interface, version 2

Thanks again for all the help yesterday testing my first stab at the eyes- and mouth-picker.  It failed to do the same thing across browsers, so it’s out.

Now I would like feedback on this version, from as many browsers and platforms as folks can get to me:

Let me know if the images of the eyes change when you click on the numbers above.

Thank you all!

Testers needed today (6/21/11): image picker interface, version 1

In response to popular demand, I’ve been working on a visual image selection interface today, so that users can pick their characters’ eyes and mouths. (No, there will NOT be a nose picker!) If you are interested in helping out, preferably today, I’ve made a sample sample script you can test on your computer. This is important because I am uncertain whether the interface will work the same on all platforms and browsers, since it’s using Javascript, so watch the video to see what I want it to look like, then go to and try it out for yourself. Copy the info about your browser and include it in any feedback you send me about your results, either posting it here or emailing me at

Thanks for your support!

btw, this video will probably disappear once I’ve decided how to make the interface.
